happy pink day!

which is to say, happy birthday to my beautiful, talented, smart and hilarious sister molly. tomorrow night, we'll be celebrating at a pink party, dressed in pink and sipping pink drinks. see, i told you we're sisters - there is no half way.

what they say about sisters is so true - there is no connection in the world like it. for siblings in general, there is nothing like having the bond of coming from the same past. it gives you a frame of reference, a lexicon, and a memory bank that only you and they share. we were each others first best friends, first partners, and a safe learning ground for so many things. except for the time i pretended to be dead while babysitting...but that's another story for another day.

the fact that you can't choose your family is very fortunate, because over the years as molly and i have each grown and changed in many ways, we've sometimes grown closer and sometimes grown slightly apart, finding our own edges and limitations. but if we hadn't been sisters, we might have grown further the way friends often do. it's all taken us here, and i feel so blessed to have a sister who is my best friend and a best friend who is my sister...

i think this song from wicked says it well about siblings, except for all the stuff about saying goodbye. never.
